Learn the Community basics

Update your profile & set notifications
Once you're registered with the Community, you'll be asked to create a username. It doesn't have to be your real name, only requirements for it are to not include anything offensive and be less than 15 characters long.
Once you have it, set up a profile picture, add a few words to the About section, and add a signature so other users could recognise you from the start 😎
Also remember to check notification options so to never miss interesting content!
